With this program Artistic Partner Yaniv Attar and Northwest Sinfonietta join with our partner in the arts—Tacoma Urban Performing Arts Center—to focus the lens on Tacoma icon Nettie Asberry, bringing her story to life with a new ballet ‘Nettie’ choreographed and performed to Aaron Copland’s Appalachian Spring for 13 instruments. The second half broadens the lens to include Jessie Montgomery’s Banner, a rhapsody on the theme of ‘The Star Spangled Banner,’ and concludes with Argentinian composer Alberto Ginastera’s magnificent concerto for orchestra and ode to his homeland, the Variaciones Concertantes.
